Quick and easy Sahara chicken recipe that will make you swoon! This chicken is the perfect addition to middle eastern rice bowls, salads and wraps!
This recipe can be grilled or pan seared on the stove top - but I highly recommend a splatter screen if cooking on the store because the turmeric can make one heck of a mess, especially if your stove/counter is white! You've been warned!
The Sahara spice blend is delicious on roasted veggies, in soups, on roasted chickpeas or used to season beef or lamb!
This chicken recipe would go beautifully with any of these salad recipes:
